Changes on the TBD front . . .

Most everyone is aware by now that Tangie Baxter Designs is no longer operating as your one-stop "Altered" Shoppe these days but some of you may not be aware that there are other changes going on right now, as well. For instance, both Tangie Baxter and Sherrie Drummond are holding challenges at their respective new homes; Tangie at Scrapbook Graphics and Sherrie at Scrap Orchard. I happen to know that they promise to be fun and fabulous and very much inclined to us "altered artists" including but not limited to weekly ATC challenges complete with prizes, even!
Here are two of my submissions for the challenges to be hosted February 25th:
#1-She Walks in Beauty; for the Altered Hearts Challenge: Lyrics (details here).


#2-When Pigs Fly ; for Tangie's Altered Challenge: Altering Brushes/Stamps
(details here)



If you're up for a challenge to get a little funky and have some altered fun, don't hesitate to check it out. And if you can't play this week, be sure to check back later.
And FYI, for those who may be interested:

Been a bit since I last posted so thought I would just pop in and share a couple of my newest layouts with you all.
One of Me and the Hubby:



And one of just "Me"; a page from my Art Journal:

Credits for both can be found here.

March marks the beginning of a new Challenge schedule at Scrap Artist so be sure to check the forums beginning March 10th for the latest Altered/Heritage challenge news!

Altered Art Challenges for February

Due to some restructuring over at Scrap Artist, I will now be hosting TWO challenges a month. This will really put my creativity to the test but I assure you it will always be my aim that the challenges be one thing and one thing only (besides "challenging, of course)and that is FUN! There are so many amazing new kits hitting the stores this month that you're bound to find all kinds of wonderful goodies to create with. Check out these making their appearance at Totally New Tuesday tomorrow!
And for a sample of what you can do with Fiddlette's amazing, Lulu in Love Kit, here is this week's Altered/Collage Challenge-
